10 Suspected Illegal Miners Apprehended In Ibadan



Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, has apprehended ten suspected illegal miners at Ona Ara Local government area of Oyo state.

The ten suspected illegal miners were paraded at the NSCDC headquarters, Agodi, Ibadan by the Oyo state Commandant of the corps, Mr Augustine Padonu, (MRM).

Parading  the suspects, the NSCDC commandant in Oyo state, Mr Padonu said the suspects were apprehended through a tip-off by gallant officers and some members of the public.

Mr Padonu explained that, the suspects specialized in illegal mining of solid mineral resources such as lithium, Beryllium, and Tourmaline.

He said despite the Government’s efforts at tackling illegal mining, the menace still persisted, hence the need for collaboration of all security agencies, as well as members of the public to wage war against the act.
